The Interruption is a Lancaster/Harrisburg/NYC based music crew spearheaded by Douglas Thomas. Five years ago Douglas pulled together a diverse group of talented musicians to help him craft and perform a collection of songs he’d composed. Michael Ray Fisher, a Broadway singer from New York took on lead vocals. DeJuan Rosado, AKA Spoken Musik, a prolific and accomplished percussionist known for his work in the local gospel scene came on as the drummer. Benjamin Weiss, who goes by the stage name Teheru, was recruited to write and perform rap/spoken word verses. But after playing just a few gigs, a series of mishaps resulted in the disintegration of the project.
Fortunately, four years later the stars aligned and The Interruption was reborn in spectacular fashion. The group added masterful Congolese guitarist/bassist Emmanuel Nsingani. They began playing shows again and built a local following. The five musicians started recording an 11 song album. After working for months on the first five songs, it became apparent that the collection of music would work best as two short EP’s with the names “Foreplay” and “HindSight.” The first EP is set to be released on Friday May 13th. To celebrate, The Interruption will host an album release party at Zoetropolis Cinema & Stillhouse in Lancaster featuring three live sets of music performed by the band.
